Jeremy Lane Arrested On DUI Charge
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane was arrested early Sunday morning for driving under the influence near Seattle.
According to Brady Henderson of ESPN, Lane was heading eastbound on Interstate 90 near Mercer Island when he was pulled over.
Lane, 27, has spent his entire 6-year career with the Seahawks, starting 21 games for the team. He has two years remaining on a 4-year, $23 million contract through the 2019 season.
This news also comes after a tumultuous 2017 season for Lane, as he was benched twice and only started six games. He was almost traded to Houston for offensive lineman Duane Brown, but a failed physical prevented that from happening. In the end, the Seahawks ended up getting Duane Brown from Houston and retained Lane for the remainder of the 2017 season.
This news comes only days after fellow cornerback DeShawn Shead said (h/t Instagram) that he would become an unrestricted free agent.
With the uncertainty of defensive coordinator Kris Richard’s job status, Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman’s injuries, the Seahawks could be looking at quite a defensive rebuild heading into the 2018 season.<!– 1516043788595 –>
